Spine Fellowship Program
Like many other qualified programs that we offer, the Spine Fellowship Program offers the fellow to enhance their skills and polish their healthcare skills.
There are three main goals of our Spine Fellowship Program:
- To develop the physician’s knowledge along with surgical techniques for treating diseases of the spine
- To provide experience in conducting appropriate research in the laboratory and/or clinical setting
- To demonstrate an ability to transmit information to other professionals through education and dissemination of research results
The Spine Fellow will be involved in a variety of education activities. The Spine Fellow can expect to gain experience with the diagnosis and management of degenerative, traumatic, infectious, and neoplastic conditions involving the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar regions of the spine. Extensive exposure to patients with spine deformities helps the fellow to get valuable hands-on experience.
The Spine Fellow is actively involved in the outpatient clinic. Clinical and basic science research is carried out under the guidance of research and clinical faculty members. Surgical experience is gained under the supervision of faculty members from the orthopedic and neurosurgical departments. This fellowship also participates in the San Francisco spine match program.
This fellowship is ACGME accredited and Physicians entering the Fellowship program must have successfully completed an ACGME (or ACGME-I) accredited residency program in either Orthopedic Surgery or Neurosurgery.
